1 Year Anniversary BBQ/MeetUp Fee Fundraiser

Celebrate one year of awesome of events with The Phoenix Shy Guys and Gals Club! Join us for a BBQ at Palmer Park in Tempe.

Every year I pay a fee to MeetUp out of my own pocket to keep this group activated on the site. In addition to the triple digit meetup fee, the leadership team spends a lot of money out of pocket to provide awesome events--even when we charge a small fee for an event, we rarely make back our expenses. This group will NEVER charge member dues, but if you enjoy the events we organize and if you can afford to throw a few dollars in towards the  MeetUp fee it would be GREATLY appreciated (anything left after paying the fee will be put towards future event costs so that hopefully the leadership team spends a little bit less of their own money this year).

UPDATE: Here is what people have signed up to bring so far. If you haven't signed up yet, please post in the comments what you are bringing. If you haven't posted by Thursday, we will move you to the waitlist. Thanks!

We could use more hot dogs and hot dog buns, another bag of chips or two, if anyone is inclined to drink beer then we'll need more of that as well. We have quite a few vegatarians in the group, and so far no vegetarian main dishes or grill options.

    The park is very small. Clayton and I are currently here. We are on the north side of the park next to the baseball field for those that need to find us. There is parallel parking on the street south of the park. There might be extra parking to east of the park if the gaye to that lot is open

If you want to drink, pour your drink in a cup! Thanks and can't wait to see you all today!

      March 19, 2014

    • Nicole

      March 19, 2014

    March 18, 2014

      March 19, 2014

  • Don

    How long is everyone going to be there?

    March 19, 2014

    • Karina Q.

      We have it scheduled until 6, so I'd imagine that's a good time table to work with. You can always contact one of the organizers to check if we're still there!

      1 · March 19, 2014

    • Don

      Thanks!

      March 19, 2014

    March 18, 2014

  • Suzy

    Ill bring cookies

    March 18, 2014

  • Karina Q.

    Suggestion for everyone! Coolers, ice, and lawn/camping chairs/blankets, and fold up tables.. Also, some outside fun activities would probably be good :D We had some pretty awesome stuff last time, hope to have it again!

    March 17, 2014

  • Ashlea

    What else do we need?? Any one bringing beverages/cups

    March 17, 2014

    I am going to be there late, so I'm thinking dessert or drinks.

    March 17, 2014

  • Wyatt G.

    I will bring homemade macaroni, garbage bags, and plates.

    2 · March 17, 2014

  • Lori K.

    I'm bringing cookies

    March 17, 2014

  • Chad

    We don't need 50 veggie trays just fyi :p

    3 · March 11, 2014

    • Karina Q.

      Also, we don't need everyone to bring a packet of hot dogs... I think Brian still has a bunch in his freezer.. Folks who went to the Newbie Picnic should have a good idea of what would be a good idea to bring! (No, I will not be losing my mind coordinating again....)

      March 11, 2014

    • Brian

      Actually, we have none. We've used them for various other events since the last BBQ.

      1 · March 17, 2014

  • Brian

    Please make sure to update your RSVP if you can't make it. Without a permit from the city, I cannot add anymore people from the waitlist. Sorry.

    Also, please make sure to reply to the food thread below. Anyone who doesn't reply by Thursday will be moved to the waitlist.

    Thanks!

    Hi! This will be the first event I'll be attending since having recently joined this meetup. Is it still alright to go if I'm on the waitlist since it's at a park? I was planning on bringing pie and whipped cream. Is that cool beans?

    March 17, 2014

  • Jacob W.

    Turns out I have to work that weekend, hopefully I can make another meet up.

    March 16, 2014

  • Don

    Can I be a maybe? I didn't realize I had double booked myself, but I might have time to do both things depending on how late you guys will be there.

    1 · March 12, 2014

  • Wyatt G.

    Last time I brought enough food for 15-20 people... Not realizing that everyone else was doing the same. We ended up with a lot of food. Does everyone think a portion for 4 or so for everyone is a good rule of thumb?

    1 · March 11, 2014

    • Karina Q.

      Probably depends on what you bring! If it's someone unique and you're think no one else will bring anything similar, I'd be super disappointed not being able to try it.. Lol but like Chad said, we don't want to have a dozen or so veggie plates!

      March 11, 2014

  • Karina Q.

    I'll be the contact again if anyone needs help finding us. Save my number if you'd like (you never know when meetup will go down again....) -[masked]

    March 11, 2014

    • Nicole

      If you need me to be a secondary contact let me know!

      1 · March 11, 2014

  • Charles T.

    Sweet. I look forward to this. I'll let an organizer tell me what I should bring (they have the low down here)...otherwise I'll show up in some bouncy boots and laugh heartily!
